among voters under the age of 50. a smaller lead for governor romney among voters 50 and older so the republicans are withstanding the attacks on the ryan budget, the medicare attacks, but governor romney would like that lead among older, more reliable, more republican voters to be a little bit bigger than 52-46. that's one thing he needs to work on. this is significant. like in michigan, the auto bailout plays big in ohio and look at this. you might say the president's only getting 41% of white men, 46% of white women. that's actually a good number. if the president can keep above 40% among whites overall and above 40% among white men, it's pretty much game over in the electorate. this is a statistic we will watch as we get closer to election day. if the president is above 40 among whites, especially above 40 among white men, in most states he would be well on his path to victory. you siee this more and more in industrial states affected by the auto bailout, the president runs stronger among white men. if that poll were to hold up, can governor romney get to 270 without ohio and
-ryan. this encouraging to the republicans, their leading among older voters, but they need the margin. governor romney would need that margin to be a little bit bigger than six points to expect to carry the margin. ohio, the auto bailout tends to help the president do better among white, working class voters. among white men, the president is over 40%. you might say well, he's getting beat. if the president is over 40% among white men in an central state like ohio, he's likely to carry the state. watch that number as we get closer to election day. if the president can stay above 40 among white men, he's likely going to win ohio. and then the question is if the president wins ohio, can governor romney defy history and win the white house? no republican has ever won without the state of ohio. so if you give this one to the president, the president could actually get over the top just by staying in the midwest. a win in wisconsin and a win in iowa, plus ohio changing nothing else in the map would put the president over the top right there. so let's come back and say is there a scenario for governor romne
of 2014. >>> a new opinion pl sges mitt romney has topped among 50% with voters. it's the first time he hit that pollsters for abc news and "the washington post" surveyed about 1,400 likely voters from sunday through wednesday. 50% of respondents said they wod teor romney, 47% for present barack obama. the pollsters asked who would better manage the economy. 52% said romney. 43sa oma the election is decided by the number of electoral votes allotted to each state. there are 538 votes in t electoral college. abc news estimates obama is likely to win 217 of them, romney 191. >>> u.s. voters seem buried under massive amounts of information and claims made by the presidential candidates. many vers can't ll whether the information is accurate or even true. nhk world's susumu kojima reports. >> in the last four years you cut permits and licenses on federal land and federal waters in half. >> not true, governor romney. >> so how much did you cut them? >> not true. >> reporter: in the presidential debates and tv ads, both candidates have bolstered their arguments with a lot of facts. often one c
, but in our poll, the president is up with independent voters by about 5 points. what romney needs to keep doing, to get the momentum or to continue a momentum that he had after the first debate is to get those voters out in the suburban areas, married women in particular, that could make the difference for him in the state of ohio, which is so key. but as for overall momentum, we're getting so many polls in every day, you talk to both campaigns and they say their tracking is the best and their tracking shows them on the road to victory. >> ryan, where do you see the edge right now in that contest. >> speaking about the ohio poll quickly, wolf. we now have 35 polls in a row and romney has only led in three out of five. so it's one of the few battleground states where since his breakout first debate performance where he didn't see much momentum, unlike places like north carolina, colorado and virginia where romney's numbers really moved, obama's small but consistent lead has been incredibly stubborn in ohio. you know, again, this weekend we're seeing this weird divergence. the national poll
romney may have suburban voters to thank. michael, great to have you back. >> it's go to be with you again, paul. >> where do you think this race stands right now? is romney surging as much as the polls appear to make it seem? >> yeah. i think romney is ahead in the race in the national race. i think he is within striking distance of the 270 eelectoral votes he needs, and the areas of the country where he made the greatest gains, when you compare him with the showing of john mccain tw 2008, appears to be a affluent suburbs. once upon a time affluent suburbs were solid republican territory, george h.w. bush in 1988 got big margins and carried states like michigan, ohio, california, in the four suburban counties outside philadelphia, he got 61% of the vote. zeroed out the democratic margin in the city of philadelphia. if you look at over the last 20 years, there's been a democratic trend in the affluent suburbs, and so president barack obama carried those four counties in pennsylvania with 57% of the vote if he carried the state. mitt romney grew up in bloomfield hills. >> a suburb of

from mitt romney's position, we should say. but what happens, when you have this be an issue in the campaign, and you talk about women being up for grarkss women voters are the crucial voters in every swing state. so if you're the romney campaign, something like that happens, romney just cut an ad for him the day before. so you worry about that. now, i talked to somebody, a senior advisor in the romney campaign after it happened and said does this make you nervous? he said, look, we tested -- tested this after todd akin and what we think people believe is just because somebody says a dumb thing they don't necessarily blame your candidate for it. but i'm not so sure there isn't osmosis at some point where you say well, it's a republican saying this and we've heard that a few times now. >> but what the obama campaign believes is any excuse to bring this up sways women toward them. i've talked to so many women voters where they do feel tugged in two different directions. maybe they do feel they are leaning toward romney because of the economy but if you get them thinking about a
